BB-8 is getting all the attention right now, but next year there’ll be another adorably rotund hero trying to steal the spotlight. Actually, there’ll be a whole village of them. DreamWorks has unleashed a new trailer for Kung Fu Panda 3, which once again features Jack Black as the voice of unlikely martial arts master Po.
Po discovers to his delight that not only is his father (voiced by Bryan Cranston) still alive, he’s been tucked away in a secret panda paradise. But his newfound friends and family are threatened by the rise of Kai (J.K. Simmons), a supernatural villain tearing through the country. Watch the new Kung Fu Panda 3 trailer after the jump.

Like Po himself, the Kung Fu Panda franchise takes its time. By the time this threequel hits theaters, it’ll have been nearly five years since the last one was released. But like the secret panda village, we’re ready to welcome Po back with open arms. There’s always room for fun, competent entertainment that’ll entertain the kiddies without pissing off their parents.
Besides Black, Kung Fu Panda 3 also brings back the voices of Dustin Hoffman as Master Shifu, and Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu, and David Cross as the Furious Five. Kate Hudson joins the cast as Mei Mei, a panda. Directed by Jennifer Yuh and Alessandro Carloni, Kung Fu Panda 3 arrives January 29, 2016.
